Clothes

A coat is the ideal thing to protect your horse from the cold in the winter as well as from horseflies in the summer and can be an essential. 

Lead Ropes

When looking after your horse you will need to buy them a lead just as you would with any other pet. This will be used when you want to lead them around the stables and it will allow you to keep them close by and guide them when you are out in the public. 

Hoof Pick

Your horse, no matter how much you care for them, will always suffer from a build up of grime and mud in their hooves. To prevent your Horse from suffering with an infection you need to make sure that you pick out the rubbish from their hooves regularly. 

Body Brush

Horses like any other animal will need to be groomed now and again to help them stay healthy and fit. It is important for you to use a good quality body brush to brush your horse every day and this will help to remove any sander, skin cells and excess hair from their fur. It will also help to distribute essential oils in the the coat and help your horse to stay super healthy for the summer. 

Mane Comb

The mane is the star feature of most horses and it is important for you to keep it in good condition at all times. A mane comb can be used every day to brush their mane and tail to keep it from becoming matted and tangled. It can be a great thing and something which is wonderful for the look and health of the horse. 

Fly repellent

Horses are large animals, and flies will always target large animals for the dead skin cells on their coat, the blood in their veins and the sweat on their skin. It is clear that your horse will have to deal with invading flies now and again and it can be something which is irritating and dangerous for your horse. Make sure to buy a great fly repellant and apply this to your horse daily. This will stop flies from taking hold on your horse and it will allow you horse to live their life without having flies buzzing around them all the time.
